Honey Mustard

We love our salads around here, and I often make a giant salad of some kind to start each week. Lately, it’s been a big green salad full of different types of lettuce and cabbage, lots of other veggies, some variety of cheese and toasted nuts, and of course, chickpeas (my favorite type of bean ever).

When it comes to delicious salad dressings, I love experimenting with new flavors like Creamy Cilantro Lime DressingChunky Blue Cheese DressingHoney Balsamic Vinaigrette, and others.

Why This Easy Recipe Works:

  • Creamy – A combo of Greek yogurt and Dijon mustard helps to achieve a creamy dressing.
  • Tangy – We love the tang from apple cider vinegar.
  • Slightly sweet – Some honey adds a nice level of sweetness to the honey mustard salad dressing.
  • And healthy! See the nutrition label below. 😀

    Thank you Sue Bee,
    for the delicious dressing recipe. I subbed one tablespoon of Dijon mustard for regular mustard. Added one tablespoon of white wine vinegar and 1 shot of Cayenne pepper for a slightly zippier flavor.
